and Kyle Edwards
Originally from Columbus, Ohio, Hannah Gray and Kyle Edwards, love to teach, live and sing harmonies. You can find us in the Botanical Gardens on the weekends and singing to our cat Mowgli in the mornings. We love incorporating our audience, big or small, in each song so that they all turn out unique and fun! Everything can be a musical instrument when we play for you!
When they aren't making music, Hannah works as a birth and postpartum doula, and Kyle is a tech wizard for a startup.
